Department of Biology

Mission Statement:

The mission of the Biology Department is to provide students with broad-based knowledge and experience in the investigative methods of life science. We support several curricula including general education, health sciences and undergraduate and graduate studies in biology. A faculty with diverse areas of expertise interacts closely with students in small classes, laboratories and field settings. We emphasize critical thinking skills and experiential learning while nurturing the intellectual development of our diverse student population. We foster scientific literacy such that our students make informed choices and act as responsible citizens.
